While it's the offseason for most of the Ducks, a few of them have remained active in the game by representing their countries at the IIHF World Championship in Denmark. Korbinian Holzer played for Team Germany, which was eliminated by Canada a few weeks ago, while Hampus Lindholm and Rickard Rakell have helped Team Sweden to a berth in this weekend's semifinals.
Rakell's six goals and seven assists have him fifth in the entire tournament in scoring, while Lindholm has been a major reason Sweden has been solid defensively in reeling off eight wins. The Swedes take on Team USA tomorrow at Royal Arena in Denmark, while Canada faces Switzerland in the other semifinal.
It was close to midnight Copenhagen time - a few hours after Sweden defeated Latvia 3-2 in the quarters - when Lindholm was kind enough to talk about his experience in the Worlds and the rest of his summer plans.
